Wee Toot, scoots a-boot
Then in the bike rack parks the
scoot at Seaton Park.
Twenty two children from St Peter’s Primary helped Aberdeen City Council gardeners and Friends of Seaton Park plant 20 assorted fruit trees to celebrate Seaton Park’s 70 th birthday. Will they sit beneath them with their own children we wonder?
As part of our effort to mark the park’s 70th anniversary we are planting 20 fruit trees (apples, cherries, plums, and pears, including some unusual heritage varieties) from 8:45am to approx.10:30am on Tuesday, 21 February, close to Mr Therm and the children’s playground. They will, we hope, produce masses of blossom for insects, and, in the fullness of time, fruit. Please come along if you would like to be involved. Bring a spade if you have one.
On the 3rd of February 55 children from Dyce Primary School brought a bit of sunshine to the park in their hi-vis vests to enjoy an al fresco lunch in the play area after exploring the River Don walks between Grandholm and the Brig O’ Balgownie.
FRIENDS OF SEATON PARK
18th March, 2017, 10–12 noon
Dunbar St. Hall, Old Aberdeen
Thank you for requesting more information about the 2017 Friends of Seaton Park CakeFest. More questions? Please contact email@example.com or send us a message on Facebook.
What is it?
The CakeFest concept is a coffee morning with a difference—think British Bake-Off meets Beer Festival! On entering the hall you will be overwhelmed by the selection of delicious, mouth-watering, homemade cakes on offer for you to eat and judge! £3 will buy you a cup of tea/coffee (juice for kids also available) and three pieces of cake. Vote for your favourite by putting your token in the cup next to it. Want more cake? Then buy more.
So You Want to Enter a Cake?
Cakes must be homemade. There are no categories—cakes, traybakes, fruit loaves are all suitable—just make your best bake(s) and bring it (or them) along by 9:30 a.m. on the day. We’ll ask you to fill in a quick card with the name of the cake, any dietary information you can include, e.g. gluten, vegan, contains nuts, dairy free, and your details.
Please note that, although we do not want to discourage you from spending hours decorating your entries, cakes will be cut prior to public judging and therefore any decorations may be damaged (we’ll do our best not to though!)
Presentations for the winners will take place at approximately 11:30 a.m. The first prize will be the coveted CakeFest apron!
